than little sally's, stand up, and come follow me. hello, america. i don't know about you, but i have always wanted to be in the mob, and now that i am, it's fantastic! the cocaine, the women, the town hall healthcare protests. i don't remember seeing any of those in those great mob movies, but here's the one thing tonight, this is not a g.o.p. mob or manufactured anger in america. what is happening is negotiating, democrats, republican and independents, senses in their guts that something is not right, and something isn't right with the healthcare plan. the polls reflect that. 65% say obama is taking on too many issues. his approval is at 50%, now worst than bush's was after the first six months. he has fallen 7 points with independents. 52% oppose how he is handling healthcare. 39% approve. more than three out of four think his plan will add to the deficit. that is important. listen to it again. three out of four think this plan will add to the deficit. remember that stat. why the decline? america, i think it's because you know something is wrong when somebody tries to rush you, tha

. >> yes and no and that everything that works well in america, the best stuff we get from capitalism. free markets. you talk about the boss and the people pleasing the boss, and you view it in politics from being a politician. i do it as a consumer reporter from businesses trying to please their customers. that's the ultimate accountability. we can only elect you once every four years. we can change the company we buy things from every two seconds. it's that motivation that makes things better. and i'm sorry i forgot the question what was going with that. but if we apply more about healthcare, we would see it in the few areas of healthcare for people pay for things himself. plastic surgery, basic eye surgery. races are coming down, quality are going up and the doctor gives out his e-mail address and cell phone number because he's looking to please the customer. it's good. >> mike: one of the things that gets talked about a lot in the insurance debate is really why does the individual have the policy owned by the employer rather than by the employee? >> at the left over from world war ii an

. stand up! come on, follow me. hello, america. oh, it's quite a show tonight. yes. by the way, that wasn't the only gem from the town hall meeting yesterday. apparently barack obama still thinks doctors are all greedy cash-hungry limb-cutting monsters. >> if a family-care physician works with his or her patient to help them lose weight, modify diet, monitors whether they're taking their medications in a timely fashion, they might get reimbursed a pittance, but if that same diabetic ends up getting their foot amputated, that's $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 immediately the surgeon is reimbursed. glenn: and that's how the doctors get you. you would think that maybe the tweed men there in the white house would have figured out, hey, this didn't go well the last time they brought up the evil doctors that are yanking tonsils out of poor innocent children, maybe you shouldn't do it again. no, no. instead, the geniuses at the white house step it up. now, doctors -- see if i have this right -- are cutting the feet off of people for cash. wow. i haven't read that story anywhere. maybe it's about time
future. i wanted this stopped. i don't want it 10 years from now. >> this is about america, remember that. >> i don't have insurance but i don't want health care either. >> yes, we will. >> no, you won't. >> talk to us that don't have health care. >> this is taking away our freedom of choice. the people said that we could have freedom of choice, where is our choice in this? >> a lot of passion although here we saw something that we have not seen before and that is a strong showing from the acorn folks. we have heard about conservative groups trying to get together to organize. our cameras got here after apparently witnesses tell me that acorn sent two busloads of people. one picture in lenticular, this was shown to me from a person who is a local person. -- one picture in particular. there is nothing illegal about that except that it upset the local population. this is a strongly conservative county, they showed up to voice their opinions and ask questions and they felt that they were disenfranchised and they were not able to get their opportunity to comment. they said that the union folk
america's image in the world, that before we're seeing it as a standoffish nation and now we're the nice guys and in terms of getting a return on this investment in the-- in policy, i don't see that at least on the results so far, you don't really see what they aim to get from russia. >> niceness has never delivered a lot of foreign policy that i can observe. >> i think that the obama administration calculus is that america's problem, foreign policy in the bush years was fundamentally a public relations problem. and to some extent that's true. we did have a big pr problem in europe for example in canada and a big pr problem in much of the arab world and that would make it harder for those leaders to back the kind of thing we wanted to do. >> precisely and the argument to the extent that we want to relieve this, maybe we can unlock a whole other set of issues and make some movement with the arab-- the israelis. >> that's on. >> and that's an argument for winning over the people of paris, that's not an argument for getting anything from our adversaries in tehran. >> that's precisely it. an

of america and merrill lynch you. might recall ta both sides along with the sec i should say, the sides being bank of america and the sec providing submissions to judge overseeing this case yesterday. the judge overseeing this says that monday's submissions raised a few additional issues about the case. essentially the judge has a couple of questions specifically for bank of america and wants to know more specifics why the bank will spend $33 million to settle with the sec without admitting or denying wrongdoing if the proxy statement was not false or misleading, including whether it settled to curry favor with the sec. essentially when both sides, the sec and b of a submitted filings, they say that they relied on outside counsel to create the proxy statement. and rakeoff essentially says it is at war with common sense for a corporate officer who produced a proxy statement to say he relied on counsel and if the company does not waive privilege, meaning attorney/client, then the officer and council's culpability are beyond scrutiny. ray cough essentially ordering both the sec and bank of ameri
on as the president of the united states tries to say, hey, america, i have it right, here's the plan, please accept it. it's not going well. why is it that it's not going well? is it the republican's fault? perhaps it's not. steve: perhaps it is the fact that the president and his people are selling it the wrong way. and, in fact, if you take a look at what's going on right now, there's kind of an intraparty war going on because over the weekend kathleen cebellius said that government option was not an essential part of the president's plan and the far left suddenly goes, wait a minute, this isn't going to pass without that. plus you look at how there's been the model on that and how the president has tried selling it essentially in the beginning as it's going to be about costs and stuff like that. he didn't really show americans how it's going to impact them. that's been the real disconnect. i've already got insurance and i like my insurance. you want me to change everything? how's it going to impact me? the president has failed in that respect. gretchen: there are three competing bills right now.
